Thiago Castanho - Octopus

Thiago Castanho



Thiago Castanho's love of food and local ingredients began at home, when his father decided to turn their living room into a small restaurant to support the family. Now 26, Thiago is one of the most acclaimed chefs of the new Brazilian cuisine with two restaurants: his first, Remanso do Peixe; and his new one, Remanso do Bosque, on the edge of a national park.

Thiago's cuisine moves easily from tradition to modernity. He manages to combine comfort food and the diverse flavours of Brazil in a unique way. His food is in tune with nature, showing great love and respect for the environment and for local producers. Thiago featured on Michael Palin's BBC series Brazil.
